Bill said: “There are some very exciting photographs of the John Lennon and Yoko on show, Jimi Hendrix together photographs of other well known showbiz icons.

“I was fortunate to have been around at the time and to have met these iconic figures,” he said.

Bill has many famous fans including Robbie Williams, who fell in love with the pictures that covered his dressing room when he was performing in Dubai.
